Where can you find the listing history of a particular property? What it was first listed for, changes.?

Asked by Kevinr1, 60614 Mon Jul 20, 2009

Trying to determine how much a property has been "marked down" since it was first listed for sale. Is there an easy way / site to track down this information? Any help is much appreciated.

Your buyers agent can complete search based on information supplied to professionals in real estate Most agents can go back by approx. 3 years.

Here is the information for the property you requested at 2244 N. Orchard. It is currently listed as Pending Sale on the MLS. The last list price was $3,550,000.

Listed 5/4/07 - 3/2/09 @ $3,850,000
Listed 3/2/07 - 6/23/07 @$3,700,000
Listed 6/23/07 - Current @$3,550,000

If you would like notification when this closes, send me a note with your email address and as soon it closes I will send you a note.

That is a fabulous area of town and we have helped clients right in the neighborhood find some fantastic homes.

In general, I don't think that you can find out a property's listing history easily without contacting an area real estate agent. If I can help you in any way in the future, please let me know.

If a property has been listed in the MLS then yes, all agents can access the history which shows any price changes, old offers that failed etc. It will be interesting to see how much of a discount the buyer negotiated from the original list price, although the list price could have been unrealistic to begin with.

That property is pending as of 6/30/09. It has been on the market since 5/04/07 and was originally listed at $3,850,000. I would be happy to email you information of properties that are still on the market.
